General Questions

Yes, we accept a number of non-physician clinicians into the program every year.

Yes, although you are expected to have a minimum of 3 of 5 / 5 of 7 days per week of protected time in both thesis and non-thesis programs. This protected time must be confirmed in writing by your clinical supervisor if admitted to the program.
